My build of New Moon (temp. name) a.k.a. Pale Moon for XP

@roytam1: Are you OK, my friend? I saw Mangkhut has moved on so the worst must have passed already... Here's hoping you're well. :)

provide some sort of installer script to make things easier/more official for others, rather than just a 7z archive? This'd work on multi user systems etc

It's not that hard to create an installer that simply copies the files to the proper place in Program Files and put a shortcut on the Desktop; I created such a setup file within 5 minutes using Inno Setup.

I'd post it here, but I need a place to host it (it's too big for the forum).

K-Meleon writes the profiles into appdata itself, if you just delete or rename "profile.ini" in the root folder. The existence of that file (or not) tells KM where to look for the user profiles.

Yeah, I'm fine, as well as my web server. I'm just busy in $DAYJOB because of aftermath of typhoon.

@roytam1 Do you have the complete source of NM28 online somewhere? I need to fix a problem specific to my CPU that is keeping me on 27. (For some reason NM28, or any 52.x-based browser for that matter, doesn't like my dual-Xeon setup too much.

I tried git-applying the patches, but they don't want to apply.

yeah that's a problem of providing not-so-updated git patch for applying.

I'm thinking a way to put the complete source without having version control, or just put it in another git repo provider. (to avoid making connection to official repo)

Grazie mille for your recommendations :) I, myself, am not specifically out for video-downloading extensions, because, unlike other posters, for me IDM continues to play nice in NM28 with most sites, including Youtube, plus I use youtube-dl (CLI, or a GUI) for most of my media downloads ;) ...

NetVideoHunter has come up several times in the official Pale Moon forums as still compatible with PM28 and working so, yes, your suggestion could be of value to many members here... But, judging by the fact it was lastly updated Nov 2015, I don't expect it to cope well with youtube's constantly changing protection methods for copyrighted video+audio content (haven't tested it myself, just an educated guess here...).

Kalimèra VistaLover.

Would it be possible to add it to the browser dropdown too on the start menu, as well as setting it as the default browser as option? Sounds pretty nice tho

If you want to upload it, use mediafire or google drive IMO

Was anything changed with Basilisk recently? The twitter videos on XP are now choppy and unwatchable. It could be something with twitter but I did check with Firefox 52.9 and they seem the same.

On the official Pale Moon camp, Pale Moon v28.1.0 (stable) has just been tagged and released as source; I expect that Windows binaries be available imminently (most probably tomorrow, or the day after) ...

Consequently, the unstable update channel, sourced from the master branch, has been bumped to v28.2.0a1; if over the coming weekend @roytam1 does clobber (as he should...) when building new binaries, NM28 builds will have the bumped appVersion and installed language packs (aimed at maxVersion=28.1.0a1) will get disabled... Just a heads up... ;)

This post is just to summarize what I learned from the very detailed and involved DRM discussion about 80 posts back, along with similar posts from other threads:

  1. The NPAPI version of Google's Widevine CDM plugin will run on Vista but not XP, so it's no help. Stephen Fox has a PPAPI version of Widevine that will run on XP, but you'll need Chrome, not FF or one of its variants, to run that.
  2. The Adobe Primetime CDM plugin will install and run on Basilisk 52 just as with FF 52 ESR (although you need to toggle media.ffvpx.enabled to false in about:config), but few providers of DRM-protected content will use it. (I suppose you could try anyway, by spoofing an older FF version with those sites.)
  3. One last possible fallback is Microsoft's Silverlight. But as with #2, you'd generally need to spoof an older FF version that didn't support Widevine, in order to get sites to try to use it. (With some sites, such as Amazon Prime, you also need to spoof Windows 7 in  your user agent string.)

Do I have that about right?

does anybody know of a way to add the Add-ons icon from the menu to be included in the Navigation Toolbar, perhaps right next to the Home icon ???

In Serpent (Basilisk): click the "hamburger" (Open menu icon); click "Customize" at the bottom, and drag the "Add-Ons" icon next to the home icon where you want it.

Not sure if it can be done in NM, which uses a different UI; I'll leave that part of the question to others.

The latest build of Pale Moon 28 for Windows XP works great on Windows Vista SP2 x86. Huge thanks to all the people contributing to this amazing project!

In New moon go to view or right click navigation bar > toolbars > customize . Drag add on in question anywhere you like.
